BC ELECTION: The wait begins for local Liberals

Candidates Darryl Plecas, Mike De Jong await results as polls close

According to Ron Gladiuk, the BC Liberal Party’s riding president for Abbotsford South, “it’s the most exciting day of the year.”

Polls are officially closed for the 2017 BC Provincial Election, and the mood at Abbotsford South candidate Darryl Plecas is upbeat.

Plecas and his supporters are gathered at Finnegan’s Pub after a long day of working the telephones.

Gladiuk said he is pretty confident about local results being positive, but is interested to see how the party performs in the rest of the province. Plecas and his supporters will be watching on at Finnegan’s for the rest of the night.

Meanwhile, Mike De Jong and his Abbotsford West supporters are gathering at Moxie’s in Central Abbotsford.
